Mike Baxter, Principal at City of London Academy (Southwark), said:

“Today’s GCSE results are a culmination of many months of hard work and dedication by staff and students.

“Like all schools in the country, the past few months have been extremely challenging. We adapted to new ways of working very quickly, but thanks to our dedicated teachers and our tenacious students we have managed it.

“This year’s results day is very different, however it acts as an opportunity to reflect on the effort that teachers and pupils have put in over the past two years.

“We wish each and every one of our students every success for the future.”

The school is managed as part of the City of London Academies Trust, which runs the City of London Corporation’s sole sponsored academies.

Tijs Broeke, Chair of the City of London Academies Trust, said:

"These results are a testament to the hard work of students, staff and parents.

“We will always make sure that young Londoners of all backgrounds have access to the information, advice and experiences that help them to progress into fulfilling careers.

“We wish each and every pupil all the best and hope that the our core values stay with them for many years to come.”

The City of London Corporation sponsors or co-sponsors 10 academies across Hackney, Newham, Islington and Southwark.

It has twice been named by social mobility charity Sutton Trust as the UK’s best academy sponsor for empowering pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to perform above the national average, and the leading academy sponsor for Progress 8 and Attainment 8, which track pupil progress and achievement.
